ITANAGAR: CBSE students who failed in the pre-board exams from Government Higher Secondary School (GHSS), Itanagar and GHSS Arunodaya, came out to the streets in hundreds on Monday demanding admit cards for the final CBSE exams.
Speaking to this daily, a student alleged that the State Education Department had earlier implemented the pre-board examination system in the middle of the academic studies due to which most of the students could not pass in the exam.
“We can’t blame the teachers and the education department in full as there is a mistake also on our side. But it is very unfortunate that excluding GHSS, Itanagar and GHSS Arunodaya, all the other schools are providing admit cards to the students who has failed more in than two subjects,” she further alleged.
She also questioned that if the rest of the schools are not complying with the pre-board notification, than why is it only applied in these two schools? “We should also be provided with admit cards to appear in the exam which is supposed to be held on March 2, 2019. Due to the no issuance of admit cards, we the students are not in the state to concentrate on our exam,” she further added.
Earlier the Director of Secondary Education, in an order had stated that the schools for one time will be provided relaxation for two subject’s failure in pre-board examination 2018-19 which will be subject to the fulfillment of requisite attendance of 80 per cent.
The order also added that the relaxation was only for the academic session 2018-19.
Comments, condemning the student protesters went flowing as the report went viral on the social network. Almost all condemned the demands of the students and asked the Education Department to stick with its pre-board rules.
